Pros

Dependable, good on gas, goes when you need it to!!

Cons

The back seals don't keep the dust out, and the back doors squeak when you open them.

Best Car I've Owned — I have the V6, and I absolutely love it! I average 24 mpg, and I am pretty hard on it. It is much faster than the 4 cylineder, and I have had almost no problems. Performance is great for a sedan. Build quality kinda lacks, the back doors squeak regardless if you use white grease, and the back seals don't keep dust out from the dirt roads. I love the way my car looks! I bought my car with 74,000 miles on it, and have just changed the tires, flushed the antifreeze, flushed the transmission, change the air filter, change the fuel filter, and do oil changes. I now have almost 111,000 on it.

Pros

Handling.

Cons

Horsepower, Transmission.

Handling, Handling, Handling. — It is the Zetec, so not much power, but in the twisties this car shines. The 130 horsepower and 130 foot pounds of torque do enough to move the car, but not swiftly. But get in a twisty road and this car will make you smile.

Pros

easy on the gas, corners as if on rails, relatively quick off the line

Cons

noisy, noisy, small back seat, lousy radio

Generic Automobile Seeks Fun. — It's rather generic looking, but despite the lack of visual zing, it's loads of fun. The 4 banger provides adequate performance but the handling is where this car shines. For this 6 footer people sitting behind me have to be short or just short trips.

Cons

Too many to list.

200 Ford Contour — Overall the worst car I've ever owned. Was an automatic that stalled constantly and for no reason. Bought it used in 2001 and wished I had never purchased it after buying it. Luckily never spent to much money in repairs and was able to trade it in for my current car only a fews after buying it. I do miss my stereo though.

Good, Depends On Who You Buy It From. By Charles

I bought it from a lady. I didn't get title. I got the car to work. It did good. There were minor problems, I blame more on the previous owner not taking care of it. Generally it was a good car. Read More

Reliable To Be Driven For 16 Years By demouyja

I like how it has been running for 16 years, and I like how it drives, It gets annoying though when the transmission slips, and also when the speedometer doesn't work, neither does the gas gauge, but ... Read More

Good For Beginner Drivers, Make Sure To Find One With Low Mileage And Check The Tranny, Belts, Etc.. By Ryan

An Awesome Car. By Joel

Great Car For Everyday And Solo Roadtrips, Would Recommend A Well-maintained One. By Austin
